Notebook: Ball State’s late addition at defensive line

DT Ropati picks Ball State

A late add for Ball State’s 2018 signing class through the junior college ranks, defensive tackle Tuni Ropati announced his commitment to the program Tuesday.

Ropati is listed at 6-foot-2, 290 pounds, grew up in San Francisco, Calif. and played his prep ball at Balboa before going to the local junior college. Ropati played in 14 total games in his two years at CCSF, made seven tackles, four for loss, and two sacks.

Ball State adds another QB, too

Ball State got good news from Indianapolis, too. Eddie Schott, a 6-foot-5, pro-style quarterback from Southport High School, announced his commitment to the program via Twitter.

Schott’s not the first quarterback to commit to Ball State’s class of 2019, let alone the first quarterback out of Indy, joining Mark Nondorf out of Bishop Chatard.

A current list of Ball State’s four commits thus far:

Name POS From School 247sports comp. State
John Harris DT Indianapolis, Ind. Roncalli 0.7498 Indiana
Rahmon Hart Jr. WR Pittsburgh, Pa. Imani Christian Academy 0.8416 Pennsylvania
